She Wore An Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini....UHHH NO.

Pretend there is no schmutz on my mirror, ok?  We're out of paper towels and I didn't feel like cleaning it.  If it bothers you that much, come on over.  There is PLENTY to do around here.

Am still loving the hair.  I even like the cute little flip it does on the end.  No, I didn't train it to do that.  My hair has a natural wave to it which I think is actually very cute.

This shirt was a stretch for me; literally.  It is NOT plus sized.  It is an xxl in the straight sizes at Target, and I found it on eBay for $3.99!  I admit, it is a bit tight, mostly in the shoulder area.  But I'm not in danger of ripping it, because it is a knit.

I don't think I've ever taken a bedroom pic before?  Our bedroom is a dark forest green.  It is one of my favorite colors!  I think it needs crown molding, though.  And I didn't make the bed behind me.  Tee hee.  There is folded laundry all over it and I will get to it when I get to it.

I'm even wearing lipstick today!  It's a weird color; it's sort of purplish in the tube but came out a warm neutral color that I really like.  So what do you think of the patterned top?  That's two new patterned tops in a week.  I'm a wild woman, I know!!!

On my way to Mr. R's job so I can pick up some money.  It's not a paycheck; it is an overage from his escrow.  Our hot water heater is basically dead; we all take 5 minute showers and I pretty much can only shave one leg at a time without being blasted with icy cold water.  I like cold weather, but I do not like cold showers.  Blessedly, he has quite a bit of money in his escrow, so he called accounting and had them cut a check for $2000 for me to pick up.   Now, hot water heaters do not cost $2000.  They are at best about $300 for the old style ones, and about $700 for the tankless, which is what we'd prefer.  So I'm basically going to pick up the money, deposit it, buy groceries and then leave the rest for when Mr. R comes home (possibly Saturday night?) so he can start calling plumbers to see if they install the newer ones.  I don't call service people; we've discovered that prices are significantly less if the man calls instead of the woman; I find it quite disgusting that there are still people trying to take advantage of women for home repairs and such.  So I've opted out in making phone calls.  Plus, I'm on the phone 24/7 for work and don't want to call anyone, anyway.
Plus...discovered yesterday that I need the 2011 coding books to take my coding exam this Saturday.  Mine, of course, are the 2010 books.  The rule just changed this week, and my office doesn't have a new coding book.  I called the coding department where I interned; they don't buy books anymore, they use all online sources.  I'm hoping Herzing can come through with a book for me to borrow for Saturday.  If not, I have to buy the book which is about $150.  Ai yi yi.

I like the yellow top! It's very cute! Your smile is lovely! I hope everything works out for the water heater. Ours went out last spring and it was quite a pain!

I know, right? I don't know why this is (about the women being charged more for the same service). This is why I hate going to get my oil changed - I have a feeling if a man went, he wouldn't be talked into the 101 extra services that my car "Just HAS to have or it will fall apart tomorrow". I wish I knew enough to know whether they were trying to cheat me or tell me the truth -- on the other hand I really don't care to learn about cars, so.... ;P
